What is the Coding Kit
The Coding Kit ©, is the official list of codes used by Citizenship and Immigration Canada in the processing of CAIPS/GCMS files.
The notes entered in the CAIPS/GCMS system by an Immigration officer are in English (may be in French for Quebec immigrants), easy to understand and provide very useful information. Interpretation service is not necessary; see why. However some of the codes used within the CAIPS/GCMS file may be difficult to interpret. The Coding Kit provides assistance in the interpretation of the file in these circumstances.
